The Quinta Ruban is a very particular malt that is first aged in bourbon casks followed by port pipes from the Quintas of Portugal.

Nose: Dark mint chocolate, oranges and walnut.

Mouth: Mint chocolate and walnut.

Finish: Long lasting smooth dark chocolate taste.

For me, this is the dessert of scotches; a well balanced, complex malt combined with a taste of dark mint chocolate. It is a bit on the expensive side for a 12, but it is worth it.
